“You done good.” He said. And then he added, “Those bastards.”

I knew he was referring not just to the physician who did this procedure, but to everyone in society who had contributed to a disadvantaged woman finding herself in such a desperate situation.

And now Va. is trying to ban abortion and contraception, in toto. (With the mandatory ultrasound as a backup plan.) OK, they've pushed it too far now. Let's have this fight. I maintain that even without SCOTUS defending abortion rights, the hard right will lose this fight state by state. I wonder if the jokers who voted for this think they've got the state so gerrymandered they'll get away with it, or if they are just tired of being in government.

No, actually, this makes an orky kind of sense. Pubbies see regulations & taxes as punitive, or at least as noxious burdens; as offenses against business that decent upstanding citizens don't deserve. But hated baby-killers? Well, the Supreme Court may not let them outlaw abortion, but that doesn't mean they can't regulate it especially hard to discourage it. And if the feminists whine that they're punishing clinics, the Pubbies can say, "Oh, no, this is just responsible regulation,"--though I suspect most will just admit they are trying to discourage abortion.
